    Hello Murat
    With the inhuman temperatures we where suffering over the past couple of weeks over here (up to 38°C) a bottle of ice-cold Gillywater would just do fine and growing some gills to be able to stay underwater would help to escape the heat ..... wouldn't it.
    Refreshing composition indeed.
    have a great time

    Hello Noel
    Did you steal my picture here .... :-)
    I have exactly the same composition sitting in my gallery, even the weather conditions and the light seem to be identical to our visit. The advantage to a visit in this weather is the absence of the busloads of tourists tough.
    Kylemore Abbey looks so impressive and at the same time lost amongst the green hills and the body of water completes it perfectly.
    have a great day

    Hello Abmdsudi
    This is such a typical moroccon scene with the cobbled stone, the low archway leading of the main street and the old house. The passing child, nicely blurred due to his fast motion, brings a good touch of life to the scene and rounds it up perfectly.
    have a great time

    Your play with depth of field is again perfect here. We can see the many dancers in the group but still the main subject stands out of the crowd perfectly.
    Again a very nice portrait of an ancient tradition in Japan.

    Bonjour Jean Claude
    Même si le quartier Latin est un peut touristique, il as son charme et le bistro parisienne est une institution de pas manque lors d'une visite. Une example plain de charme avec son vieux deco et les board des menus géant.
    Seul la reflection du photographe dans la verre du porte est un peut trop visible et derangeant comme l'oeul focus toujours sur le jaquet bleu.
    bonne journée

    Very well timed picture with the flying wheat giving the scene a nice dynamic. Threshing wheat has not much changed over the centuries and it is nice to see the old traditions being upheld by committed farmers. The colors and the light are simply stunning,

    I know exactly where this picture has been taken. Unusual for me to see it without snow. The warm colors are really pleasing and the view stunning as ever.
    When we where in A we had a windy and snowy day here.

    Hello Hunkar
    Now that is what I call a massive building indeed. It somehow reminds me of the gouvernal palace in Bucarest. The light is sublime, the sky gorgeous and the reflection in the pond just amazing.

    A wonderful sight indeed and a pity it is overlooked by most tourists. The combination of the gnarly tree with the ancient temple ruins is very evocative.

    Hello Ray
    The natural bridge formed by the arch here is quite photogenic indeed. Beautiful scene and outstanding quality for a 10 year old picture. Glad that you could avoid the presence of any humans that would have destroyed the mood of the picture.

    This is a nice and evocative photo with a great atmosphere. The late afternoon light has created a pleasant mood and the the dog watching the fisher man is just the cherry on the cake.

    Hello Lisa
    To me the colors in this wonderful and amazing scene look perfectly well. The pink in the sky is nicely balanced and the emerald water simply beautiful. I quite like the curved line of the fencing and pool to, it leads the eye perfectly trough the composition.

    As the site here slowly dying, might it be that the time consuming process of commenting 20 pics a day with only one uploading option is simply to much in our fast paced time where a simple klick for a liking is the day's winner? Not everybody's prepared to take this time. Even myself I often find myself uninspired and unmotivated to start to comment and upload, shame on me ....
    anyway I hope to see you around from time to time and have a great day

    Hello Adrian
    A beautiful setting with beautiful reflections in the water of the canal that leads the eye nicely towards the statue on the end.
    A pity tough that the horizon seems to be ever so slightly tilted to the left. Something that easily could have been amended.

    Ingeniously framed scene with the church and round tower well placed within the round in the delicately adorned railing.
    I could have visited Andernach today if I would have stayed in the Rhine a little longer earlier today when I went swimming in the Rhine :-)

    Hello Noel
    I know what you mean with the Irish summer, when touring Connemara myself we had on and off rain and wind as well. I do hope to revisit the region some other time with more luck in the weather tough.
    For the shop it certainly is a great idea to build a stopper like that and i bet the shop and café are going stronger since the statue has been placed here.
    have a great day

    A subject that cries out for a black and white conversion. The man and his extravagant way to wear his coat are so full of character as is the bar itself. A timeless piece of art indeed.

    Hello Ann
    What could epitomize better the art of english country living than a beautifully kept garden? This is is a perfectly executed shot with the grass and border building a nice diagonal, the gardener strategically placed (but why does he wears two different socks?) and the couple just appearing in the small gap between the hedges in the back. All elements together form a perfect peaceful scene that is very pleasing to the eye.
    have a great day

    Hello Abmdsudi
    Exactly my cuppa actually. The bustling city of Jaipur is of corse the perfect place to experiment with the panning technique. The hustle and bustle of traffic in that city is mind boggling indeed.
    In my opinion you have achieved here an almost perfect example. The rickshaw drivers are reasonably sharp while the rest is more or less blurred according to the speed they where travelling. Well done indeed.
    have a great day
